Question All steps without residency?

I'd like to know if it is possible that I could take all 3 steps without doing my residency in USA?

If this is possible, what's the average salary for such intern?

You can take all the steps including Step 3 before starting residency.

But you cannot work as a doctor without finishing complete three years of residency.

Intern in USA means PGY1 which means Post Graduate Year 1 which means the first year in residency.

Average salary for intern is $42,000 per year.
